MACNAUGHTON (S.) My War Experiences on Two Continents. 1st Ed., xii+286pp., portrait frontis. John Murray. 1919  #65581
[HLMainPic] Posthumously published memoirs of which Falls writes: "Miss Macnaughton, a well-known novelist before the War, did hospital & canteen work until she died worn out in 1916. She was at Antwerp when the Germans were approaching the city, & in Flanders after trench warfare had begun. She afterwards visited Russia & Persia. She records in her diary, from which this book is compiled, the horrors she witnessed. Her criticisms are perhaps less valuable than her observations, because they are all coloured by an almost ferocious feminism, which simply could not comprehend fighting men." Orig. green cloth, titled in red, somewhat rubbed & worn but sound & scarce. See illustration on our website.   £30
